I'm not all that surprised. Genuinely nice to see a bunch of the old faces return, as unlike the men it never felt like they would come back. Also nice to see them get one last shot to go out as competitors instead of divas. Also helps having great new talents in there, and the same old spots from the men's rumble feel fresh here (lifting Nia Jax is fresh, whereas hoisting the Big Show is old hat).
So what are Wrestling fans thoughts on Ronda? Just curious as an outsider looking in here. I haven't watched wrestling in almost 20 years (i watched it a bit during the attitude era) or so but ive been an MMA fan going on 10 years or so now. I think the feeling from most MMA communities ive seen is that shes getting a good payday so for play to her, but theres a lot of "she cant cut it in real fighting anymore so now shes gonna do fake fighting".
She'll put eyes on the product and she is a fan. How good her work is is still to be decided and I'm unconvinced in her ability to cut a promo. If she works full time and they build stories it's fine. If she just works part time and walks through talent then I'd happily do without her.
I think it'll be a terrible idea if she beats Asuka - that really needs to be the payoff to some major storytelling.
The current plan for Ronda Rousey's WWE debut at WrestleMania looks to be a tag team match against Stephanie McMahon & Triple H.
There had been rumors all week regarding the match the company had tried to put together for WrestleMania 31 with Rousey & Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson against Stephanie & Triple H. It is unknown whether that match can be put together. Johnson hasn't' been able to wrestle a significant match due to insurance reasons regarding movies he has agreed to do that have kept him from wrestling at last few WrestleMania shows, aside from the few second match with Erick Rowan in 2016.
Ah of course Triple H and Stephanie are involved in a big angle like this.
Surely that's a load of rubbish considering she's basically squaring up to who ever Asuka dosen't choose? Hopefully not, could't think of a worse match, mixed match where they tag out when the opposite gender comes in. Ew.
Mania potentially could be awesome;
Taker v Cena Nakamura v AJ Brock v Braun (or Reigns) Asuka v Charlotte? Ronda v Alexa?
